    The serial number on the other side will tell you. The fake one is listed on the ESEE website.

    Seriously though, that's a damn good fake. I wonder how they hold up/compare

    I've got some of the fakes, there ok hold decent edge. But not 1095 some kind of stainless, the d2 version is a little different from the other fakes but sure it's not d2. I consider them to be like a cheap disposable lighter- use it abuse it if it get stolen or lost so what. There not as good as the real thing, but if you think about it what is.

    I had posted the link before, but don't know if it will be in good taste, now that I know it's a counterfeit. Suffice it to say that it's a direct order from China

    Sorry if that sounded like I want one, not interested in a fake...I can buy steel and make one close enough...on the other hand if you see a tracker for 5 bucks......lol

    Nope, I'm positive esee has lost their minds and decided to sell these for $5 out of the goodness and generosity of their swelling, corporate heart of hearts. Buy em up now while you can 'cause ehrbody deserves a full tang fixed blade just barely big enough to open a pack of ramen.

    :confused:
